March 2, 2023

OAKLAND, Calif., March 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The Clorox Company (NYSE: CLX) has earned the top ranking on Barron's 2023 100 Most Sustainable Companies list — its second time in the top five and fifth consecutive year in the top 25 since the rankings were first released in 2018. Clorox was selected for its continued efforts around sustainability, diversity and transparency.

Clorox ranks #1 on Barron's 2023 Most Sustainable Companies list for its ESG efforts.

"Sustainability is built into the fiber of our purpose to champion people to be well and thrive every single day," said CEO Linda Rendle. "This recognition reflects our unwavering commitment to fully integrate environmental, social and governance performance into our daily business. While we're incredibly proud of this achievement, we still have more work ahead to continue making positive change for our teammates, communities, shareholders and planet."
